   all known patches from Linux maintenance project). This release
   fixes two important bugs:
     1) The "Pentium-F00F" bug which allows a non-privileged user to
        crash the entire system.

     2) Fix for the "teardrop" bug. This bug allowed for crashing any
        system which is connected to the internet. All Linux kernels
        including 2.0.31 were affected by this bug!
